Only one person in the world will get that reference.
(you didn't even know it was a reference, did you?)
Anyway. Has been an interesting week in some ways. I *ahem* sort of just realized, well...*I have a scanner.* I mean, I knew this. And in my defense, I don't usually think most of my work scans well. But these did, very well in fact. So, yay.
Interesting thing regarding these, #1: I got a very cool package. :D
Interesting thing #2: I cut some very awesome cards out of watercolor board, which I love love love.
There are other interesting things. I shall spare you, at least for the moment.
So, this first card is a whole bunch of stuffs. Done on Canson XL Mixed Media, with watercolor markers, watercolor sticks, pencil, and Inktense pencil.
This second card came from my wonderfully exciting package...it was primed with acrylic iridescent which I thought would be *perfect* for the moon. I was right (the right side of the moon is pure surface), though I had a rough time getting oil pastel to stick to the smooth acrylic. But then someone mentioned pan pastels and lightglobe went off and yes, pan pastel is *awesome* over oil pastel. The surface is a delightful velvety contrast to the iridescence.
This next one is the above-mentioned watercolor board (like illustration board, only wc cold pressed surface). It took my watercolor markers *beautifully*. But it did need sparkles, so I used some sparkly stamping powder and also some ink.
Canson XL Mixed Media again. Watercolor marker and an extremely small bit of ink. Sorry, Kitty, for messing up your cute feetsies. I promise I'll get them right next time.
Canson XL Mixed Media a third time with ink, watercolor sticks, watercolor, and watercolor marker.
This was a very fun week.
